It is not the purpose of this thesis to draw a definite conclusion as to whether the course of action taken by the United States should be justified or condemned. I have attempted to trace, in a cursory manner, the events leading to the Panama Revolution; and the subsequent signing of the Hay-Bunau-Varilla Treaty. This treaty cleared the way for the beginning of the construction of the Panama Canal by the United States and established a protectorate over the republic of Panama, which was contrary to the established principles of the United States, and continued in effect until 1939. Relations between the United States and Panama have often become strained and vexatious since that time, however, I have used this date as a convenient stopping point.
